Sashiko BOM - Block 1

I went to the Brisbane craft show in March and saw a quilt from Indigo Niche in sashiko.  This was a bit different to the usual  navy/white and it caught my eye. 
I have finished Block 1 - it was easy enough as the design is already printed on and its a simple running stitch - once you master the huge needle and thick thread (and long length compared to my normal stitcheries).

One block done - 8 to go!


  1. that looks good. Are all the blocks using the same colour background?

  2. Looks lovely.... I want to do some sashiko with my other japanese blocks.... so I will be watching closely...
    Love that bamboo...

  3. very nice block Susan,well done.xx
